This month, Nate’s having his firm’s design directors take over the hotlist for a dose of June glamour, culture, and magic. Curious to know what Sasha Adler and Lauren Buxbaum are obsessed with right now? Check out their picks below, you’re not going to want to miss the stuff that keeps them on the edge of their seats.
WEAR: I am obsessed with everything Alessandro Michele designs for Gucci, from the traditional horse-bit loafers to the vintage-inspired and embellished dresses. His sophisticated mix of color and pattern, as well as his modernized nod to the past, is nothing short of creative genius. I recently took inspiration for a girl’s bedroom straight from the runway.
GROOM: Glossier’s Balm Dotcom is my favorite! It’s a rich, moisturizing skin salve that’s the perfect all-in-one miracle. I use it on everything from lips to cuticles – even on my kids. They just launched Cherry and Rose, which have the most subtle hint of color that’s perfect for barely-there summer makeup. I am smitten!
MOVE: My workout gear consists of primarily black, black and more black. Totally boring and the excuse I have been giving myself for my recent sabbatical from the gym. However, I just discovered Outdoor Voices, which is totally worth working out for… I hope.
WATCH: My husband and I have been binge-watching House of Cards on Netflix. It is intense, captivating and totally addictive.
DECORATE: Not only am I madly in love with these hand-woven rugs and runners (which can be customized in a rainbow of colors), but I am also enamored with the beautiful story behind the company. Founded by a mother and daughter, Awanay employs native artisans in South America to weave the textiles using ancient techniques, and ensures they are fairly compensated for their work.
SPRITZ: Sasha brought me back this Tabaco perfume from Coqui Coqui in Tulum. I’m so grateful Net-a-Porter sells it because I would be in dire straits without being able to get refills! It’s my go-to summer fragrance.
GROOM: The beauty site, Violet Grey, is another problem for me and my makeup addiction: I can’t live without this Tom Ford eye pencil. I smudge it on every day, and for me, it makes the most impact in the least amount of time. Key for life with a 7-month-old at home!
UNWIND: Nothing helps me de-stress like music (and a solid glass of wine). My favorite group, Miike Snow, just released a new album that I’ve been listening to every day on my way to work It never fails to put me in a good mood.
INDULGE: Speaking of that glass of wine, last summer I was pregnant and couldn’t drink, so this summer I plan to make up for it. On our first warm day, my husband and I darted out the door to one of our favorite restaurants, Nico Osteria, to sit al fresco with one of our favorite sauvignons, Venica.
